This collection of inspirational quotations has been gathered from a wide range of beloved sources, East and West, from Confucius and the Buddha to Cervantes and Rumi; from Euripides and Lao Tzu to Albert Einstein and Rainer Maria Rilke. Reaching across the centuries, author Eileen Campbell culls the timeless wisdom of poets, teachers, philosophers, and saints who share their vision of how we can live fully and happily in the present while facing an uncertain future.--From publisher description
Introduction: Time For a Change -- Seize the day! : and live in the present moment -- Imagine the future : follow your dream -- Fear is an illusion : dare to be yourself -- Master your mind : you are what you think -- Let it go : put the past behind you -- Trust the Universe : faith is the answer -- Listen, and pay attention : you will hear the still small voice -- Count your blessings : and be surprised by joy -- Try a little kindness : compassion is the key -- There is a purpose! : life is a great opportunity -- Work to live : true work is service -- Live simply : and become 'time-rich' instead of 'time-squeezed'
